Built in geolocation breaks the continuous background execution

      Description

      The current Geolocation implementation of Cordova is using the built-in on Internet Explorer 10.

      This implementation breaks the possibility of run the application on background.

      After running a simple code as:

       
      navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(gps.onSuccess, gps.onError, {
           enableHighAccuracy: true,
           timeout: 3000
      });
      

      And pushing the Home button, the app is deactivated instead of receiving the RunningInBackground event (reason: ApplicationAction).

      I tried with a C# native implentation of Geolocation and solves the problem.
